    Amazon is aiming to undercut Apple even more with many new chart-topping songs selling for $.69. These songs were previously priced at $.89, already well below the standard $1.29 for new releases on iTunes.

    The move shows the two companies very different strategies in terms of their digital music downloads. Amazon, a distant second to Apple in sales, is attempting to make up market share ...

    I got an email with a promo code a couple days ago from Konstantin Schmoll, developer of an iPad FTP app called Codosaurus ($5.99 in the App Store). I've been checking it out the past couple days. Schmoll almost has it right, with some big updates needed before this is the perfect iPad FTP app.

    I've been a web admin for over a decade (my first site was a Warcraft - no numbers, just Warcraft - fan site which was fully awesome in it's animated gif's and background midi, took 3 minutes to load, and was probably hosted on GeoCities). The iPhone and ...

    Similar to the first wave of international launches one month ago, long lines (sometime 500 people ...

    Google is about to challenge Apple in an entirely new way. And although some see Google "ripping off" Apple's popular iDevice Facetime video chat service, the last time I checked Apple didn't own the very concept of video chatting. So, as a result, we may see an entirely new challenge from Android devices to kill the runaway momentum of the iPhone 4 and perhaps the next-generation model.

    After days of speculation, it appears we may finally be able to confirm that Apple paid up big time to secure the domain iCloud.com. With Apple rumored to be planning an iTunes music streaming service of the same name, it was apparently justified for the company to cough up a reported $4.5 million - yes, $4.5 million - to lock up this prime digital real estate for the future.

    On Friday, ...

    App developer, FeiYingInfo today snuck through Monino, what is quite possibly the most blatant example of copyright infringement that you’re likely to see any time soon. Although Monino appears at first glance to be a genuine Nintendo game, featuring everyone’s favorite Italian plumber, it is in reality just a poor imitation of the beloved classic that we all grew up with as kids. Monino did, however, manage to reach number six ...

    I don't usually read all the tweets in my timeline. A few times a day I'll pop over to the Twitter app on my Mac or Twittelator on my iPhone and scroll through a bit. I miss a lot of stuff, and it's just a list to me. There's a new app which makes that experience different. TweetyPop is the perfect combination of Twitter and touchscreen.

    TapFactory's TweetyPop just came out yesterday - with a new idea on how to use Twitter. It's tactile, and it's exploratory. TweetyPop displays a 3D view ...

    Rumors and the reports they've spawned over the last twenty-four hours suggest that sluggish sales of the CDMA-based iPhone have promoted Apple to dramatically reduce the production order for the model through the end of the year. If reports from the far east are, indeed, accurate, Apple may have slashed the rate of production for the CDMA iPhone by as much as 50%.

    My calls to Apple regarding ...

    The unveiling of the iPhone four nearly a year ago encompassed all of the usual Apple spectacle. New features, new design, and of course the two available colors: black and white. However, on launch day there was no white iPhone. Apple cited minor delays and that the phone would be available soon.

    Then it was delayed again.

    And again.

    Apple apparently was struggling with production Alchemy. Except it didn't involved gold, rather it involved white paint and ultra ...

    Leaking information about Apple products before said products are released can be really bad for one's well being, particularly if you work at a Chinese manufacturing plant that produces the gadgets about which you squealed. That's certainly the moral of today's story out of Foxconn.

    As it turns out, although we're just learning of the matter now, several months ago Chinese police took into custody ...
